I've been an apple user since the first iPod touch came out. I purchased it, and then later bought the iPod touch 2G. I still have that model and use it quite often.
I've been wanting a Smartphone for some time right now, but my "dumb"-phone's contract doesn't expire until 2013, and I'm not quite really in the position to purchase a new one.
So, I'd basically like a device that can do what a smartphone can. Not EVERYWHERE internet speaking, since iPod can only connect via Wifi.
Will the iPod touch 5G be something worthwhile to upgrade from a 2G? I REALLY would like a camera, which the 5G will obviously have since it's 4G counterpart does.
I have enough money already to buy it, assuming it will be $199-$219.
What do you think I should do?

No one can really answer your question because it isn't even out yet

Based upon that fact that the 5G iPod will be better than the 4G, you will have something to base it on.

* a whole lot faster
* probably a bit sleeker
* much nicer, clearer display
* able to run newer firmwares and newer software than your old one
*The camera will probably be crappy (even if its better than the 4g, which is pretty crappy)
* The screen won't be as nice as an iPhone 4g
* You may have to wait awhile (maybe months, maybe longer) for a jailbreak.
You'll love the screen when you're indoors or in low-light conditions, but outdoors you could be disappointed because it'll be almost useless in direct or indirect sunlight. The 2g screen is semi-transflective; in bright light you can crank the backlight down to minimum, and its still quite readable. 3g less so, and 4g not at all.
Other than that, we have no idea how much of an upgrade (over 4g) the new one will be.
